When it comes to holiday gift giving, it really is the thought that counts, and no gift indicates well-spent time and energy like a hand-made one. Unfortunately, not all of us inherited the crafty gene. You know, the one that allows us to recreate projects from the pages of Home and Garden in beautiful form and color?
For a little guidance ®C and projects with Chicano flair ®C try The Sagrado’s Make and Take Holiday Feista at 1023 Grand Avenue. On Saturday, December 22, from 2 to 4 p.m., Phoenix Fridas member Monique Mata will lead a craft workshop, which will include three project options. The Fridas celebrate the Chicano craft experience, with members like Mata planning and leading community events such as this throughout the year.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
